Oregon Shakespeare Festival

A couple of weeks ago Micah and I went down to Ashland, OR for the Shakespeare Festival. This was our Christmas present to each other. We found a hotel that was offering a package deal of a one night stay, 2 tickets to any play and $30 off a dinner in their restaurant. So we flew down early on a Thursday morning, arrived around lunch time, and had a great lunch at a brew house. Then we explored the cute little town of Ashland. There were lots of cute shops to browse through. Later we headed back to the hotel to check in and took a nap. Then we headed off to dinner and our play. Dinner was wonderful! And we ended it with one of the best desserts I have ever had. It was a warm, melting chocolate cake with salted caramel ice cream on the side. Oh so yummy! I want to go back just for that dessert. After dinner it was time for our play. We saw Pride and Prejudice, and it was fantastic. They did a wonderful job. And our seats were amazing!

West Fenwick Park

A few weeks ago it was a sunny morning, and Micah was home, so we decided to take Andrew to the park up the street from our house. Andrew had lots of fun running around, going down slides, and climbing on the toys. I was hoping he would wear himself out and take a good nap, but no such luck. Oh well. It was still a fun morning.

Driving Around Fred Meyer

I just had to take a picture of Andrew in the car cart at Fred Meyer (our local grocery store). He absolutely loves cars, and loves to ride around the store in this cart. He even steers the wheel. He is just so darn cute!

A Few Announcements...

Sorry we haven't been blogging much lately. Things around our house have been pretty busy the last couple of months. For one thing, we bought a minivan. We are very excited about it. We have been saving for years, and were just waiting until we found the right van. I had been checking Craigslist for a couple of months, and ended up finding a great deal on a 2006 Honda Odyssey. And we ended up buying it! Andrew LOVES the van. The first few weeks we had it, he kept asking to go down to the car. So we would go down and get in the van. He likes pretending he is driving, and of course he has to push all the buttons.
Another thing we have added to our lives is that Kim became a Stampin Up demonstrator. (A Stampin Up demonstrator is someone who sells Stampin Up stamps, scrapbook supplies, etc. and does parties where she demonstrate the products.) Her friend who was a demonstrator was stepping down, and asked Kim if she wanted to take her place. So far it has been a positive addition to our lives, but it does take up more of Kim's time (thus less time to blog). And it has been a way for us to add more income, which has been nice. God continues to provide for all of our needs! Below is one of the cards Kim made with her Stampin Up supplies:

And the card goes along with our last announcement. We are expecting another baby! The baby is due around September 21st. So we are about 12 weeks along. We are very excited! It will be fun to see Andrew as a big brother, and meet our new little one.
